Once the ancient capital of Cyprus, Larnaca is rich in history and tradition, with its Medieval and Venetian buildings and the world-famous Tekke mosque. According to legend, it was also visited by Saint Lazarus whose remains are exhibited at the famous church in town. With its secluded beaches and unspoilt Salt Lake, it could not be more ideal for a relaxing day out, all year round. This sleepy seaside town has an ever-growing range of dining options, as more restauranteurs are now choosing to locate away from the commercial “Phinikoudes” seafront. There are countless fish taverns, meze joints and cafes to visit and many are within walking distance.
Undoubtedly the most cosmopolitan town on the island, Limassol is home to many top-notch eateries of every cuisine. In particular, many high-range hotels have undergone a major revamp and invested in creating new restaurants as glamorous as the local clientele and the guests residing there. Many sophisticated beach bars adorn the coastline, with an array of á la carte options for every palate and around the Medieval castle, a walk into the old quarter reveals many culinary gems. Just outside the town are countless ancient and historical sites, such as Kolossi castle (once the home of Richard the Lionheart), Curium amphitheatre and the ancient city of Amathus.
